installation itself screws with permissions across the board.
To even configure the card, you have to run the .cpl (control panel file) as admin. This wouldn't be so bad, if it was for just for the cards control panel. Somehow the driver installation de-elevates just about every other app in the process.
ie A lot of applications, games etc suddenly need to be run as admin when they didn't before
As nelqiz suggested, use the multi-drivers and install with compatability mode.
You can either install the XP or Vista drivers (from their respective folders), with either XP or Vista compatibility.
When installing via XP or Vista, the only difference appears to be the control panel GUI frontend. The drivers and functionality appears to be the same, regardless of how you install.
The only significant change that the beta drivers appear to bring is a new frontend GUI and to re-enable DTS:Neo - which quite frankly, is crap anyway.
Auzentech are focusing on the X-FI series, so I wouldn't expect support for older cards in a hurry.
